Great Comedy in San Francisco!

Legendary NightclubHere’s your opportunity to discover San Francisco’s best up-and-coming comedians. Each week we offer the best and brightest stand-up comics in an intimate and historic comedy club, the legendary Purple Onion. At just 80 seats, this is an amazing way to watch comedy, up close and personal!

The Purple Onion is an icon in the history of San Francisco for over fifty years. In the 1950’s and 1960’s, this cellar nightclub was vital to the legendary stand-up scene in North Beach. Such legends as Phyllis Diller and the Smothers Brothers got their start here, and comedy luminaries like Woody Allen, Richard Pryor, and Lenny Bruce performed here as well.
